Located in Sonoma, California, we take any number of our 70 animals to nursing homes, hospitals, retirement communities, senior citizen centers, and various other events throughout the Bay area.

Many of our animals have been rescued from neglect and abuse, or were scheduled to be euthanized. These pets now serve to benefit the emotional and physical health of the elderly, patients in psychiatric hospitals and in long-term care facilities.
